Gnomes have player stats in the monster manual, and i don't get what they're doing with tieflings at all. It was so arbitrary. They don't seem to be "plane touched" either. They're not "heirs to a lost demonic empire" or something, and all the artwork portrays them as "freaky demon goat people". A far cry from the "hint of the otherworldly" that they previously were
